Dresden, 3 December 2012

 

First of all I would like to thank Baroness von Schorlemer for helping to organise my visit to Dresden and Saxony, and for taking the time to show me the impressive research and innovation taking place here.

I'm very pleased to see people from different walks of life here tonight – from industry, science and politics.

Whatever our field, I know that one thing unites us: we are all dedicated to ensuring that our cities, our regions, and Europe as a whole, become powerhouses of research and innovation.

In the European Commission, we are working hard to ensure that research and innovation policy helps you carry out top quality research and produce the innovations that will give us growth, employment and a better society.

To do this, it's essential to have a dialogue, a constant exchange of views.
